Robert Stacy McCain: Stereotypes Are Accurate (and Feminists at DePaul Are Man-Hating Witches)

A Rutgers University social science professor set out to research how stereotypes are inaccurate so he could proclaim and promote that to the world with hard scientific data – but eventually made a startling discovery: most stereotypes are accurate.

Scholarly claims of “stereotype inaccuracy” are baseless, Dr. Lee Jussim told The College Fixin an interview.

“When I first began my research, I had assumed all those social scientists declaring stereotypes to be inaccurate were right, so I wanted to know the basis for those claims,” he said. “I would track down the source in an attempt to get the evidence. And slowly, over many years, I made a startling discovery – claims of stereotype inaccuracy were based on nothing.”

…“Famous psychologists declaring stereotypes inaccurate without a citation or evidence meant anyone could likewise do so, thereby creating an illusion that pervasive stereotype inaccuracy was ‘settled science,’” Jussim said. “It was only if one looked for the empirical research underlying such claims did one discover that there was nothing there, just a black hole.” . . .

      Why ruin a perfectly respectable scientific term?

    So we are free to use stereotypes again?

      Have you ever attended a film marketed to Black Americans in an American city cinema complex? The stereotypes arrive in teams of 12 or more. It’s really fun to do this with some virtue-signalling progbot relative or friend/acquaintance. Watching people realize how accurate so many stereotypes are is genuinely fulfilling.

    There are two kinds of stereotypes that you need to be aware of as one of them is almost always right and the other almost always wrong.
    Stereotypical behavior that you witness in person while interacting with the rest of the world, and stereotypical behavior that is fed to you by TV and Movies is almost always wrong.
    Look for yourself.
    It’s all out there if you will just allow yourself to notice.

      You’re not supposed to notice, Drunk. You must be a bad man! 😉

        I’d like to say “mad, bad, and dangerous to know” but someone else beat me to it.

      I try and avoid places where stereotypes group together as it tends to be dangerous to others.

    I honestly rarely if ever hear anyone saying stereotypes are inaccurate, just that they are mean, offensive, etc. Even the left wing people I know tend to say something more along the lines of that it’s a gross generalization, or the straw man argument that they are weak enough and don’t apply to so many that you can’t use it to define all of them (even though no-one did). Closest I’ve heard is they’re not accurate “anymore”, but even that admits they’re based on some level of truth.

    Stereotypes, positive or negative, rarely emerge from nothingness.
